Do you think that we need a stronger policy or just more enforcement in this 


The above URL has background information on the Autscape conference where 
anyone who doesn't want to be photographed can wear a black circle to 
demonstrate that fact (which would be useful for people who have difficulty in 
asking others to stop).

So it's obvious that this issue doesn't just relate to LCA and doesn't just 
relate to women.  It also seems clear that the policy is not too strict.
